Scariest time of the year

So today I’m talking about the scariest movie you’ve ever seen. I have to admit I am no authority on this at all. I’ve raised four kids and get scared plenty on a regular basis. No kid under forty should be allowed to drive!

I hate to be scared and now we’re entering the scariest time of year...except for tax time, of course...Halloween! I’m talking about the movies. Holy cow. I don’t get why people pay good money to get scared out of their pants. Heck, I have a pile of laundry in my closet and a spider under the porch that will do that for free.

I think the scariest movie I ever ventured out to see was Jurassic Park. The kids and I held hands and screamed for two hours. Every time the water vibrated you knew there was a dinosaur coming to eat someone. Then again I did see Silence of the Lambs. That is enough to make you give up Chianti for the rest of your life.

So, what is the scariest movie you’ve ever seen? The Shining? The Exorcist? Texas Chainsaw? What made you nearly wet your drillies or squeeze your dh’s hand so tight to do permanent damage? What is the scariest movie out there now? I’ve seen some trailers and those alone are enough to curl my hair forever. And why in blue-blazes do you think we pay and go to a movie theater to get scared to death?

  1. If it sounds scary, I'm too chicken to go see it!

    1. I live alone so anything scares me to death. Criminal Minds keeps me away for weeks.

  2. I was traumatized for life by Psycho. To this day I buy clear shower curtains so I can see if anyone is coming.

  3. I don't like scary - That's why I read cozies.

  4. So glad to see that I am not alone in having to have clear doors or curtains due to Psycho.

  5. Hands down, "The Handmaid's Tale". Made me want to run right out and donate to Planned Parenthood, Green Peace, Save the Whales, the Natural Resources Defense Council, The Nature Conservancy ....

  6. Hmm wright, is a combination of wrong and right? But should have been write ...
    But I do love your books a lot :) and I don't read or watch scary either.
